Patrick is a young boy who loves dinosaurs and one night after the rest of his family has gone to sleep he meets a dinosaur on the internet named Flato. Flato then comes and brings Patrick to the dinsoaur planet where Patrick is able to meet many dinosaurs, some that are friendly, and some that are hungry.
This book would fit into the fiction/fantasy category as it is about how dinosaurs are still alive. Although personally I find the story telling to not be as believable as other books.
I would read this book to elementary age students.

Review: Patrick loves dinosaurs, and he wishes he could meet them. One dinosaur appears at his window in a space ship and takes him to meet all of his dinosaur friends.
Critique: This was a good fantasy because it brought to life something a lot of kids imagine. It brought them to life in a way that not a lot of kids would think about: through space. It was also a good fantasy because it made the subject fun, a lot of dinosaur books present them through science, this one made it way cooler. ( )

This book is about a boy who wants to learn more about dinosaurs and ends up going on a spaceship to where dinosaurs live. There he meets them and interacts with them. Eventually he must go home but he always thinks of them.
Uses: Talking about dinosaurs, Fun reading

As other reviewers say - too long, not sweet, the illustrations don't work for me, and it's just odd. ( )

This was a fun book to read. I know that my students would love it, especially many of the boys. It allows readers to use their imagination in this modern fantasy. I'd recommend it!
